Purl & June

Welcome to Purl & June! Since we raise sheep and goats, it seemed only natural to have a shop featuring handmade items inspired by them.  You'll find natural body products here, such as handmade cold-process goat milk soap (with milk from our own goats!), along with all natural lip balms and lotion bars made with sustainable ingredients such as local beeswax and essential oils.  You'll also find an assortment of different wool products, like one of a kind needle felted items and hand knit and felted coffee cozies, purses, and more.  

Don't forget to like Purl & June on Facebook to stay updated on the shop's happenings!

Our handmade goat milk soap is made courtesy of June and Ida, our resident Oberhasli dairy goats!  Goat milk is wonderful for soap making. It has a pH very similar to that of our own skin, and contains alpha-hydroxy acid, which is known for softening and rejuvenating skin.  It also contains emollients, vitamins, and triglycerides which moisturize skin.

Our soap is made with natural, non-petroleum based oils. Coconut oil is known for producing a superb lather, palm oil is conditioning and helps form a hard bar, and olive oil has wonderful moisturizing and conditioning properties!  Our soap has a wonderfully creamy and silky lather.

And yes, there is lye used to make Purl & June soap. You can't make soap without lye. But no worries!  The lye reacts with the fats to make soap in a process called saponification. When you combine the proper ratio of fat and lye, all the lye is used.  In order to make extra sure our lye is saponified, we superfat our soaps.  This means our soap contains and extra 5% oil in eatch batch to make sure it is completely saponified.  We also age our bars for 4-6 weeks to make a wonderfully mild bar.

Ingredients:  olive oil, goat milk, coconut oil, palm oil, castor oil, lye (soaps may also include fragrance, color, and other add-ins depending on type of soap)
